My plan: Leave Iowa early, Meet Ricky & Amber
Hang at Shop, Work on Stuff, Get Coffee !!
Coffee shop had motorcycle parts on the walls, neato . . . so after a delicious afternoon "pick-me-up-java" we strolled back to Anchor Motor for a couple bike tune-ups, brake bleeds and wire swaps, all the while dudes showed up and plans were made for the evening . . .
Downtown KC has all these old, red brick, industrial buildings everywhere . . . now re-purposed into antique stores, art galleries, work spaces . . . and tattoo shops. Photo below: I strolled into Billy's little antique store around the corner and picked up a vintage "speed shop" T shirt and an antique can of Oilzum Chain Lube.
Billy's shovel chop (built with a little help from Ricky Anchor . . .)
Bitchin' GMC and Hangin' wit me Kansas bros . . .
(see ya next time !)
More Bikes and more people just kept showin' up. It got busier and busier.
The local Boulevard Brew was goin' down good !
The band tunin' up . . . skates were rollin' . . .
About the time the tension in the air was the heaviest, the beer buzz was kickin' in . . . choppers out front, all these cool cats, fillin' in the scene . . . about that very moment . . . The Big Iron amps came bustin' in and you just about wanted to jump right out of your pants and start mashin' and bashin' . . . Fuck it was great.
and plays in a kick ass punk-rock band !
It got a little blurry . . . but it was so much fun. All kinds of eye candy for an artsy gear head like myself. Really neat and I'd give First Fridays an A+ . . . see ya'll soon. -Noot
